LGBTQ Support Groups

Mission Statement:

The St. Thomas More LGBTQ Spirituality Community Welcomes You!

We are an inclusive, caring, and supportive Catholic community providing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning persons and their families the opportunity to explore and express their Catholic Christian spirituality in a safe, non-judgmental, and nurturing community of shared faith and concern. We seek to have conversations with one another and with our Church that are charitable and just, informed by love, compassion, respect, and understanding. ‘

Our integration with our wider Diocesan faith assembly is achieved in prayer, sacraments, community, and service. We strive to meet and accompany persons, wherever they are in life or on their spiritual journey, inclusive of each individual as one of “us” and never as someone “other.”

Know that the Lord is God who made us, to whom we belong.
We are God’s people, the sheep of God’s flock. —Psalm 100

Jesus commanded us, “Feed my Lambs….Feed my Sheep.” —John: 21

It is our goal that all LGBTQ persons may grow in love and hope, grace and fulfillment through participation in this ministry. Our activities include open discussion groups, family support meetings, social and prayerful gatherings, and occasional designated invited speakers.
